Threat Level – ELEVATED

(2021-11-15) We continue to operate at an ELEVATED level, monitoring, and actively hunting for threats.

Alert Level Information

  • LOW indicates a low risk. No unusual activity exists beyond the normal concern for known hacking activities, known viruses, or other malicious activity.
  • GUARDED indicates a general risk of increased hacking, virus, or other malicious activity. The potential exists for malicious cyber activities, but no known exploits have been identified, or known exploits have been identified but no significant impact has occurred.
  • ELEVATED indicates a significant risk due to increased hacking, virus, or other malicious activity that compromises systems or diminishes service. At this level, there are known vulnerabilities that are being exploited with a moderate level of damage or disruption, or the potential for significant damage or disruption is high.
  • HIGH indicates a high risk of increased hacking, virus, or other malicious cyber activity that targets or compromises core infrastructure, causes multiple service outages, causes multiple system compromises, or compromises critical infrastructure. At this level, vulnerabilities are being exploited with a high level of damage or disruption, or the potential for severe damage or disruption is high.
  • SEVERE indicates a severe risk of hacking, virus, or other malicious activity resulting in widespread outages and/or significantly destructive compromises to systems with no known remedy or debilitates one or more critical infrastructure sectors. At this level, vulnerabilities are being exploited with a severe level or widespread level of damage or disruption of Critical Infrastructure Assets.
